Mexico Lindo in New Castle, DE -- so great!

WOW, I just wanted to thank the folks who posted about Mexico Lindo in New Castle, DE, on U.S. Route 13. I've never had Mexican food that good! (But then I've never been in Mexico and I never found any great Mexican on my brief trips out west.) Mexico Lindo is on the southbound side of 13, just north of the U.S. 13-U.S. 40 split. The address is 165 South Dupont Highway, New Castle, DE 19720.

My folks and I ate dinner there a few weeks ago. We almost didn't go in there because, from the outside, it looks a bit like a hole in the wall, and it was mostly empty that night (this was sometime around New Year's). But what fantastic food! We got a chicken mole poblano, a vegetable kebab dish, and an excellent shrimp dish (I think it came in a spicy red sauce?). Everything was great and the entree prices were around $10 for lots of food. Highly recommended. It was empty that night though, so more people need to go there (maybe it was because we were there kind of late, around 8:30 or 9 perhaps, on a weeknight).

Going back and doing a search, I see that Kass is the name of the poster who mentioned this restaurant originally, but couldn't remember its name, and RC51Mike responded reminding Kass of the name. Huge thanks, y'all!

Here is the original post by Kass (assuming the pages don't get reshuffled later):

Any other great ethnic options in New Castle, by any chance? Occasionally we drive through this area... I saw a really neat-looking little Asian place on Route 9 just north of I-295, over near the Del. Memorial Bridge, but haven't had a chance to go yet. It was Chinese and... Malaysian, maybe? Mmmmmm, Malaysian....
